Type in “benefits of cloud computing” into your Google search, and your results will be flooded with articles, blog posts, and whitepapers all touting the same top benefit: Cost savings.
Moving to the cloud has a direct impact on business costs. For starters, it reduces hardware costs. Gone are the days of purchasing expensive in-house equipment. With cloud services rendering on-premise servers obsolete, real estate is freed up for more beneficial uses and energy expenditures are cut.
But, don’t be fooled. Cost-savings isn’t as easy as simply migrating to the cloud. In fact, it’s estimated organizations that have done little-to-no cloud cost optimizations will overspend by 70% or more.
Here’s the truth about the cloud: There’s so much more to it than its price tag. After all, there’s a reason (five of them, actually) on-premises workloads are shrinking—from 37% last year to 27% in 2020.
In today’s age of daily disruption, fast-paced digital economy, and continuous innovation, it just makes solid business sense to move away from clunky old data centers and towards the cloud.
Why? Because it opens up the door to increased security, productivity, innovation,and the ability to truly do more with less. That means you can focus on the stuff that matters most: Growing your business.
With cloud services, workplace productivity is also directly impacted. It’s faster, so employees spend less time waiting and more time working. The cloud is accessible virtually anywhere, so it provides an easy way for larger enterprises with multiple locations to pass data. Additionally, working with a trusted partner to manage applications in the cloud frees up internal time to focus on the business.
